Generation Home is a Series A London-based mortgage lender on a mission to make homeownership accessible, simple and fair for first-time buyers.

The status quo for owning a home doesn't work for most people. They miss out on homeownership because they're locked out of the system by rigid lenders and brokers. But it doesn't have to be this way. We're building a lender that focuses on two things; opening the door so more people can buy a home and creating a meaningfully better mortgage experience. Our engineers play a vital role in this process.

The focus of our (cross-functional, agile) engineering teams is to solve our biggest customer problems by helping decide how (and why) we build our products and how these products will impact customer lives. How can you help?

The role

As an Engineering Manager at Generation Home, you will be able to drive your team and hire the people around you. You'll play a key role in deciding how your team will contribute to our mission of bringing more people into homes.

Day to day, you will work on a combination of:
  • People management : The most important goal of our engineering managers is to build and help their engineering team grow to deliver exceptional products and delight our customers.
  • Product engineering : Our engineers work cross-functionally on the end to end delivery process of our products. Engineering managers support teams, working closely with product managers to help them identify opportunities to get our customers into homes.
  • Architecture : Your technical expertise will be vital for your team, providing them with guidance and advice on building scalable systems that integrate well with the work of other teams around them.
  • Building : You'll be hands-on, collaborating with your teammates to engineer the best mortgage lender in the market.

About you

We look for Engineering Managers with great product understanding that:
  • Care deeply about customers : we measure our success by how many people we bring into homes. If you're excited about solving customer problems, then do let us know!
  • Are great to get along with : some people want to get ahead, others want to get along, but we understand that we need to get along to get ahead. If you're a team player, then we'd love to hear from you.
  • Lead experience : we look for Engineering Managers with at least one year's experience in line management in teams of at least three engineers.
  • Are open to different technologies and tasks : Our engineering team is open to diverse coding backgrounds if you're willing to play with Ruby on Rails, React and TypeScript in a full-stack capacity. Knowledge of building end to end systems would be a plus.
